Gaithersburg & Cape Coral – July 2020
Clarus Merchant Services and Quality POS have formed a strategic partnership aimed at providing merchant services and point-of-sale systems to billiard and pool halls. Together, they will combine Clarus’ vast payment processing platforms and its support team with Quality POS’ established pool hall and restaurant distribution network.
Quality POS, with its Cobra POS system, provides the billiard community with pool table time management and anything that is time based by the minute or by the hour, plus tableside food and drink ordering, retail sales and inventory, restaurant management, gift and loyalty programs, and cash discount capability.
“This partnership is a formidable combination. Quality POS has a strong foundation and reputation in the pool hall world, owned by Jerry Radtke, a competitive pool player, as well as a 20-year merchant services veteran.” said Michael Jaffe, Clarus EVP of Business Development. “Clarus has thrived over the past 20 years through strategic market growth and portfolio acquisitions. The synergies created between Quality POS and Clarus provide a unique opportunity to promote versatility in an otherwise niche market,” added Eric Pottebaum, Clarus President.
“Partnering with Clarus Merchant Services allows us to take our game plan to the next level.” said Jerry Radtke, Quality POS owner. “Most processing sales and service organizations traditionally focus on a broad spectrum. This arraignment will enable us to dial into and focus on an industry that has specific aspects and needs.”
